General Index. 


In the preparation of this book I have had the valuable assistance 
of Mr. Oren F. Morton, who, in addition to condensing the great 
mass of material into the shape in which it appears in sections from 
1 to 251, prepared the articles which appear under the title "Vir- 
ginia's Share in the Militia Movements of the Revolution," and 
"Virginia Counties, Old and New." 

I wish also to acknowledge my indebtedness to Judge Lyman 
Chalkley, of Lexington, Kentucky, for procuring for me some of 
the declarations of record in that State, to Mr. W. G. Stanard, 
the Secretary of the Virginia Historical Society, and Dr. Henry R. 
Mcllwaine, the Virginia State Librarian, for many courtesies shown 
me while engaged in the preparation of this book. 


This book does not profess to be a history of the Virginia Militia 
in the Revolution. No claim is made that it gives a complete 
list of the companies from any of the counties. Its purpose is to 
make available the material, some of which I have been gathering 
from time to time for a number of years. It is believed, however, 
that it is the first attempt to compile a considerable quantity of 
data on the subject. In a statement issued by the Secretary of War 
in 1832, he says that there are in his department no rolls of the 
State troops except those of Virginia, and no rolls of the militia 
except those of New Hampshire. 

In regard to the Militia, very little is known and that little is 
extremely fragmentary. 

In 1776 the available militia in Virginia is thought to have 
been about 45,000 men; probably it was never less than 40,000, of 
whom possibly one-fourth saw real service. Other states have 
counted their militia in the strength which they gave to the Revolu- 
tionary cause. For the lack of data Virginia has not received credit 
on this score. The reports of Secretary-of-War Knox fail to do 
justice to Virginia along this line. The figures given by him are 
mere estimates. 

In 1776 a large number of Virginians were in the field against 
Dunmore. Some went to the relief of North Carolina and others 
were in the Cherokee Expedition in the West. 

In 1778 Virginia had a number of militia in the operations in 
the West and for defense along the frontiers. 

In 1779, Virginia was authorized to send militia to South 

In 1780, the militia were out in large numbers. 

In 1781, 700 militia joined General Gates, some were at King's 
Mountain and others were serving around Norfolk. In the latter 
part of this year Dan'l Morgan had some of them serving in 
Green's Army. In 1781, practically all of the available militia of 
Virginia were summoned into service, taking part in the Battle of 
Guilford Court House, serving with Lafayette and at the Siege 
of Yorktown. 

ViRGiN'iA Militia ix the Revolution" 

It is hoped that the material given in this book may throw some 
light on these services. 

Most of the statements set out in this book were found by me 
in the counties where they were made. The word "county" is 
omitted in the statements where it will be easily understood. In 
some of the counties the declarations of the soldiers for pensions are 
spread in full upon the order book. In others they may be 
found filed with the papers of the term of court at which the ap- 
plication was made. Where not set out in full on the record book 
and not filed with the papers of the term, a very difficult proposi- 
tion presents itself. I have frequently succeeded, however, in finding 
among the old musty files a package in which these declarations are 
wrapped up and have been preserved. Should all of these methods 
fail to disclose the statement, the only other method of procuring it 
is to obtain from the Bureau of Pensions at Washington, an ab- 
stract of the particular statements desired. 

Frequently in the Clerk's Offices there will be found applications 
on which no pensions have been issued, due sometimes to a failure 
to supply proper proof, and at others because the service was not 
of sufficient length to bring the applicant w^ithin the terms of the 
pension law. 

Under Chapters IV and V will be found the list of successful 
applicants for pensions whose pensions were granted solely on the 
ground of service as Virginia Militiamen. Many others w^ho obtained 
pensions for service in the State Troops or in the regular service 
unquestionably served at times in the militia. There are several 
instances in the statements set out in this book where soldiers w^ho 
held a high rank in the State troops or in the regular service later 
on served in the militia. 

In Sections from 251 to 280 inclusive, I give the names of 
officers who were recommended or qualified in various counties in 
the State. While this does not necessarily mean that the person 
served, the probabilities are so strong as to make it almost a cer- 

I have followed various trails which were said to lead to 
muster rolls of Virginia Militiamen but found only the few which 
are set out in this book. 

Virginia's Share in the Military 
Movements of the Revolution 

In this article we present a bird's-eye view of those field move- 
ments of the Revolution, which immediately concern Virginia, It 
will interpret much of what is told in the pension declarations. 

During the spring of 1775, Virginia committed herself to the 
cause of American Independence. In June, Lord Dunmore, the 
tory governor fled to a British war vessel, and from the safety of 
its deck he still made a pretense of asserting his authority. During the 
summer he gathered a few ships and with a force of British and 
tories he began to harry the shores of the Chesapeake. His style of 
warfare consisting in plundering plantation houses, maltreating 
women and children, stealing slaves, and burning seaports. In Octo- 
ber he was repulsed from Hampton and in December was defeated 
near Norfolk. But on New Year's day, 1776, he cannonaded and 
burned the last named town. General Andrew Lewis took command 
of the Virginia forces and drove Dunmore from his stronghold on 
Gwin's Island in the Chesapeake. The late governor sailed for 
England, and for three years the British had no foothold on Virginia 
soil. Yet their navy enabled them to dominate the sea, and the coun- 
ties lying on navagable waters were thus kept in frequent alarm. 

The first phase of the Revolution, as it relates to Virginia, was 
therefore the contest with Dunmore on the tidal waters. It was 
fought with militia, who came in part from the counties toward 
the Blue Ridge. The militia of the Tidewater continued to be called 
out here and there to repel the parties which landed from ships 
for the purpose of plunder. 

The second phase consisted of trouble from the Indians on the 
western frontier. They had been stunned by their defeat at Point 
Pleasant, in 1774, but being urged on by British emissaries and 
white renegades, they at length began to harass the weak settlements 
in Kentucky, along the Holston, and toward the Ohio. To quell the- 
Cherokees in the Southwest, a large force of militia was sent to the 
Holston early in the war. This army was in part made up of men 
from east of the Blue Ridge. But the militia of the Shenandoah 

Virginia Militia ix the Revolution 

Valley were able to stand off the Indians who threatened them 
from the Northwest. The w^ar parties of the red men scarcely ven- 
tured east of the Alleghany divide, yet the scattered settlements be- 
yond were subjected to much distress. The wanton murder of Corn- 
stalk, at Point Pleasant, was the immediate cause of the Indian raid 
into Greenbrier in 1778. The Indian depredations continued 
throughout the war, and garrisons had to be maintained in the 
frontier forts throughout the threatened area. 

Being unmolested by any strong force, Virginia was free to raise 
and equip a number of regiments for the Continental service. Several 
of these took a distinguished part in the war in the Northern colonies. 
But for some time the militia were scarcely called upon except for 
the purposes already named. 

The final phase of the Revolution in Virginia did not actively 
begin until the close of 1780, although in 1779, Clinton, the British 
commander-in-chief, had sent an expedition to ravage the coast. Un- 
able to make head against Washington in the North, Clinton had 
carried the war into the South. Under Cornwallis, his armies 
overran South Carolina during the spring and summer of 1780, 
Georgia being already in their power. North Carolina was thus 
threatened from the South, and continued British success meant 
peril to Virginia from the same direction. To render the outlook all 
the worse, there were few disciplined Virginia troops who could be 
summoned to defend the State. The Virginia Continentals had been 
sent South as well as North. Gen'l Mathew's regiment had been 
captured at Germantown, Buford's had been massacred by Tarlton's 
troopers, and still other regiments had been included in the surrender 
of Charleston, to say nothing of still further losses. The drilled 
Continentals had proved themselves equal to the best British regulars, 
but although Virginia still had a somewhat numerous militia, they, 
were untrained men and therefore at a great disadvantage when con- 
fronted by veterans. 

In the fall of that year there was some apprehension that the 
Carolina tories under the energetic Ferguson, would push into South- 
west Virginia. There was a considerable tory element in that region, 
and it was a further object to seize the lead mines in Wythe County. 
The militia were called out in their defense, but in October, Fergu- 
son's army was annihilated at King's Mountain, men from South- 
west Virginia contributing to this fortunate result. 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

In 1780, General Muhlenberg, the brilliant soldier who had quit 
the pulpit for the camp, was sent by Washington to take comma:: d 
in Virginia. Gathering some odds and ends of trained troops, and 
some militia, he drove the British General Leslie from Portsmouth. 
Next January, Benedict Arnold, the traitor, appeared with a larger 
force than was present to oppose him. He took Richmond and thei 
fell back to Portsmouth, burning and plundering all along his line of 
march. At Portsmouth he was blockaded by the militia under 
Muhlenberg. General Lafeyette was now sent on by Washington with 
1,200 regulars. To rescue Arnold, a still larger force of British 
was sent to Portsmouth, and Phillips, its commander, advanced a:id 
took Petersburg. Here he had an engagement with Steuben, who 
was in general command of the Americans, pending the arrival of 
Lafayette, whose approach prevented a second capture of Richmond. 
Phillips died of fever at Petersburg and Arnold resumed command 
of the British. 

Meanwhile, Cornwallis had pushed the Southern army, under 
General Green, through North Carolina to the very border of Vir- 
ginia. Notwithstanding the menace of the British army on the lower 
James, it was necessary to meet the new danger. Through great 
exertion, some 1,600 Virginia militia were collected to join Greene. 
Many of them were from the Valley counties. With their help he 
gave battle to Cornwallis, at Guilford, March 5th, and crippled 
him so badly that he made a tumultuous retreat to Wilmington. 
Greene advanced into South Carolina, and toward the end of May 
Cornwallis arrived at Petersburg and superseded Arnold. 

The British army in Virginia was now about 8,000 strong. La- 
fayette with his much inferior force was pursued to the Rapidan, 
v/hich he crossed at Ely's Ford. Cornwallis then moved toward the 
mountains. A raiding party under Colonel Simcoe destroyed the 
American magazines at the mouth of the Rivanna. Another expe- 
dition under Tarleton dispersed the State Legislature, at Charlottes- 
ville, but was deterred from pushing on to Staunton by the militia 
gathering to defend the mountain passes. Tarlton had been taught 
a lesson by his crushing defeat at the Cowpens, a few months earlier. 
Lafayette recrossed the Rapidan at Raccoon Ford. Cornwallis at- 
tempted to strike him on the flank, but was foiled by his adversary, 
who opened by night an old path since called the "Marquis Road," 
and took a strong position behind Meechums River to protect his 

10 Virginia Militia ix the Revolution' 

stores. Cornwallis did not attempt to force conclusions, but under 
orders from Clinton retired toward the coast, followed by Lafayette, 
who on the Rapidan had been joined by Wayne with more troops 
from the army in the North. 

Cornwallis had been ordered to take a position on the coast, so 
that he might be within supporting distance of Clinton at New 
York. This movement turned out to be his undoing. While execut- 
ing it, two small engagements occurred near Williamsburg. The 
first known at the time as the battle of Hotwater, took place at 
Jenning's Ordinary, seven miles to the Northwest. Colonel Butler, 
a good officer under Lafayette, fell upon foragers under Simcoe, res- 
cued the cattle they had taken, and handled the British roughly, but 
was forced to retire under tlrc approach of Cornwallis to rescue his 
subordinate. The other fight, that of Green Spring, took place 
near Old Jamestown. The British were about to cross the James 
at this point, and Waj'ne, who was misled into thinking only a rear 
guard was on the north bank, made an impetuous charge against 
greatly superior numbers. He was repulsed with a loss of 118 men 
to the enemy's 80, but in alarm at the onslaught, Cornwallis did 
not deem it best to pursue and run into a possible ambuscade in 

Cornwallis took post at Yorktown. In September, Washington 
arrived with a further re-enforcement and assumed general command. 
The gathering militia swelled the American army to a strength of 
9,000 ijien, French under Rochambeau raising the total to 15,000. 
Being outnumbered two to one on land, and bottled up by the French 
Heet which commanded the bay, Cornwallis had to succumb to the 
inevitable. With his surender the war was practically at an end. 
During his almost unobstructed marches through the State, his 
armies wrought damage after the characteristic British fashion in 
the extent of about $10,000,000, the equivalent of probably three 
times that sum at the present day. 

After the surrender of Burgoyne, in 1777, many of his men were 
sent to a military prison, at Winchester, others were quartered at 
Albemarle Barracks (now Charlottesville). The prisoners taken at 
the Cowpens were also sent to Winchester, as were likewise the sol- 
diers in the army of Cornwallis. To guard all these prisoners of war 
manv details of militia were called into service. 

Virginia Counties, Old and New 

Before the Old Dominion was torn into two states in 1861-3, 
the 149 counties of which it was then composed were grouped into 
two Districts; the Eastern and the Western, the line between them 
being the crest of the Blue Ridge. This division was thoroughly 
well known, and was recognized for administrative convenience and 
sundry other considerations. There has always been a marked 
difference in the origin, habits, and characteristics of the people of 
the two sections, and thus the Eastern District was the "Land of the 
Tuckahoe," while the Western was the "Land of the Cohee." 

Of the present 69 counties of the former Eastern District, 58 
were already in existence at the outbreak of the Revolution in 1775. 
During that time of strife, four new counties were formed ; Fluvanna 
and Powhatan, in 1777, and Campbell and Patrick in 1781. Flu- 
vanna was formed from Albemarle, Powhatan from Cumberland, 
Campbell from Bedford, and Patrick from Henry. Between 1784 
and 1838 seven more counties were established; Appomattox, Frank- 
lin, Greenesville, Madison, Nelson, and Rappahannock. With one 
exception, all these newer counties lie against the Blue Ridge, and 
therefore in the more lately settled part of the old Eastern District. 

The explanation given in the above paragraph will make clear 
why seven counties east of the Blue Ridge are never alluded to by 
name in the military movements of the Revolution. The names of 
officers and soldiers properly belonging to those areas must therefore 
be sought in the records of the older counties from which the newer 
ones were formed. 

In the Western District the situation was vastly different. No 
portion had been settled for quite 50 years, and to a very great ex- 
tent it was still an unoccupied wilderness. Because of these facts, 
there were, prior to 1776, only seven organized counties instead of 
the present 86. These seven were Augusta, Berkeley, Botetourt, 
Dunmore, Fincastle, Frederick and Hampshire. Berkeley then in- 
cluded Jefferson, Dunmore included most of Page, Frederick included 
Clarke and Warren, and Hampshire included Morgan, Mineral, 
Hardy, and Grant. The remaining and far greater part of the 
Western District was comprised in the enormous counties of Augusta, 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

Botetourt, and Fincastle, the jurisdiction of all of which was as- 
serted as far as the Ohio river. Dunmore was soon renamed Shenan- 
doah, and Fincastle disappeared because of its subdivision. 

During the war for Independence eight new counties arose in the 
Western District. Washington and Montgomery were formed in 
1776 from a part of Fincastle. In the same year, Ohio, Monogalia, 
and Yohogania were formed out of the Northwest section of 
Augusta, the present county still retaining a frontage on the Ohio 
river. The other new counties, Rockingham, Rockbridge, and Green- 
brier, were formed in 1778. Rockingham covered all the north of 
Augusta east of the Alleghany divide, and it then included nearly all 
of Pendleton and a portion of Page. Greenbrier, taken from Bote- 
tourt, reached to the Ohio river, while Rockbridge, formed from 
both Augusta and Botetourt, has always had substantially its present 

But Virginia, following the wording of her charter, claimed all 
the country to the west and northwest as far as the Mississippi, and 
the Great Lakes, and also that section of Pennsj'lvania lying west of 
the meridian, which constitutes the western line of Maryland. In 
the French and Indian and Revolutionary wars, these claims were 
maintained by force of arms. Thus Kentucky County, taken from 
Fincastle in 1776, afterwards became the State of Kentucky. Illinois 
County conquered from the British by George Rogers Clark and 
established in 1778, afterwards became the Territory Northwest of 
the Ohio, and out of it were carved the magnificent states of Ohio, 
Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. A boundary dispute 
with Pennsylvania was settled to the advantage of the latter state. 
By means of it, Virginia lost nearly all of Yohogania County, the 
fragment saved being annexed to Ohio County. She also lost a large 
part of IVIonongalia. 

The few counties west of the Blue Ridge were not only large, 
but because of their great extent they possessed a considerable popula- 
tion. This was particularly true of Augusta and the counties south- 
west of it. It therefore explains the large number of officers and men 
who came from those counties as the boundaries then stood. Because 
of the additional circumstance that their inhabitants were nearly 
all white, they took a very conspicuous part in the Revolution. Prob- 
ably no one county furnished so many soldiers as Augusta. 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 13 

One other fact remains to be noticed. The Valley of Virginia 
had been settled such a length of time, that a majority of the men 
it sent into the Revolution were native to the soil. But this was not 
at all the case west of the Alleghany divide. The settlers west of the 
range were but a handful, and very few had been there so long as ten 
years. They were immigrants from the older counties of Virginia 
and from the neighboring states of Pennsylvania and JV'Iaryland.

Declaration of Virginia Militia 


Section No. 1 

MASSIE, THOMAS.*— Nelson, Feb. 15, 1833. Born Aug. 
22, 1748. In the Spring of 1775 he was chosen captain of a large 
company of volunteers to assist in protecting Williamsburg and the 
country between York and James rivers, against the depredations of 
Lord Dunmore and his myrmidons. Within the ensuing fall, he 
received a captain's commission to recruit a company of Regular 
soldiers to serve in the 6th Va. Reg. of the line on continental 
establishment. His Company, being recruited at the commencement 
o.f the following spring, he marched it to Williamsburg and united 
with the said 6th Regiment, then under command of Colonels Buck- 
ner and Elliott, and Major Hendricks. All the companies were 
nearly complete, some he believes, quite so, viz. : Capt. Samuel Cabell, 
Lieutenants Barrett and Taliaferro, and Ensign Jordan; Capt. 
Ruffin, two lieutenants and ensign; Capt. Johnson, two lieutenants 
and ensign; Capt. Hopkins, ditto; Capt. Garland, ditto; 
Capt. Cocke, ditto; Capt. Oliver Towles (a celebrated law- 
yer), and company officers; Capt. Gregory, ditto. He believes 
Capt. Worsham, or Dun and Avery. Also himself (Capt. Massie), 
Lieutenants Hockaday and Epperson, and Ensign Armistead. The 
companies were raised in different and distant parts of the State, and 
he had not even personal acquaintance with many of them, which. 

*Note: — Except for the introductory lines, this declaration is given in 
full, the language of the original document being followed. It will be 
found of much interest. It throws important light on the treachery to the 
American cause of Gen. Charles Lee at the battle of Monmouth; a matter 
which was not fully cleared up by American historians for seventy or more 
years after it occurred. 

4S ViRGixiA Militia in the Revolution 

together with the length of time, renders it difficult for him to 
remember every officer's name. After the Regiment was equipped 
and armed, it marched out and camped in the vicinity of Williams- 
burg, where it entered into camp and military training; whence the 
regiment was ordered to march to the North. Within the summer 
following this was done under the command of Col. Buckner and 
Major Hendricks (Lieut-Col. Elliott having withdrawn), Capt. 
Ruffin died and he believes another officer, and several resigned or 
withdrew. The regiment marched through Virginia by way of 
Fredericksburg and the Northern Neck, through the upper part of 
Maryland into Pennsylvania by way of Lancaster, leaving Phila- 
delphia to the right; crossed the Delaware River above Trenton, 
and passed through Jersey to Perth Amboy, where the regiment 
was posted to defend that point and the country around until further 
orders. Gen. Washington at that time having the greater part of 
the main American army on Long and York Islands, soon after 
the defeat of that army on those islands, he, with his said regiment, 
was to march up the Sound by way of Newark. The storm and 
capture of Fort Montgomery taking place, he met with Gen. Putnam 
at Newark, and marched up the North River as high as Fort Lee. 
The defeated army had crossed the Hudson, except a part that had 
marched on the east side of that river under command of Gen. 
Chas. Lee. He, the said Thomas Massie, fell in the rear of those 
retreating troops who had been appointed to cover their retreat and 
marched the upper road by Springfield, Scotch Plains, etc., to New 
Brunswick, on the Raritan River, where the troops to which he 
was attached were attacked by the British Van. Having destroyed 
a part of the bridge, the said American troops kept up a hot fire 
with their artillery and small arms, with the British the whole day. 
This checked the progress so much as to enable Gen. Washington 
to cross the Delaware River with the retreating army, military 
stores, etc. The troops to which he was attached (being unin- 
cumbered), also had the good fortune to cross the Delaware with- 
out much loss. Gen. Washington having refreshed the troops and 
received reinforcements recrossed the Delaware in the night of 
the 24th of December (he thinks), surprised and defeated a large 
body of Hessians, posted at Trenton, captured about 900 of their 
number, and crossed the river again with them. Several days subse- 
quent. Gen. Washington, having received reinforcements, again cross- 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

ed the Delaware River with his army and took a post at Princeton.. 
He, the said Massie, was for the two succeeding years generally 
employed on detached or particular service, consequently was seldom 
with the said Sixth Regiment or his company, which company was 
by this time much reduced. On the 1st day of January, 1777, he 
marched under the command of Gen. Scott (who headed a con- 
siderable body of troops), on or about the Princeton road and en- 
camped in the evening on the Heights above Maiden-head. Soon 
after the van of an army under the command of Lord Cornwallis 
appeared, followed by the main body, said to amount to 12,000 
men, and encamped in the place for the night. By dawn of the 
next day the enemy were in motion and filed off in columns to the 
American left, apparently to surround them. The Americans dis- 
charged two light field pieces of artillery at them, without return, 
and retreated down the road to a creek, which they crossed over 
a bridge and destroyed the same, and took possession of the ground 
on the Trenton side of the creek, then covered with large forest 
trees. Gen Hard at that time, being above with a large corps of 
Western Pennsylvania riflemen, the Americans kept the enemy at 
bay for several hours (he believes), before he could effect the passage 
of the creek with his large and heavy artillery. The Americans 
retreated up and slowly along the road to a summit of a hill, also 
covered with forest trees. Here Gen. Washington, accompanied 
by Gen. Green with reinforcements, came up. Here the Americans 
also skirmished (a considerable time), with the enemy before they 
retreated, and ultimately retreated to a long hill perhaps a mile to 
the west end of Trenton in view of the main American army. 
Here they formed and awaited the attack of the enemy. The day 
being now very far spent, the enemy appeared and approached 
the Americans in columns. As they were displaying we gave them 
a fire in single file from right to left, and retreated under a 
heavy fire of musketry and artillery, and formed under the protection 
of the main army in Trenton. A very heavy cannonade ensued 
directly between the two armies that lasted until after dark and has 
been called the cannonade of Trenton. Gen. Washington, having 
fortunately gained a grand point in eluding Cornwallis' intention 
of bringing him into a general action, made up large fires in front 
and left those who had been in the van during the day to keep them 
up. He immediately marched with his army, and takirg the 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

Princeton road, reached that place early the next morning, defeat- 
ed Col. :\Iahood, whom Lord Cornwallis had left there with troops 
to defend the place and its stores. Gen. Washington, having taken 
off these stores, etc., proceeded down the road by Kingston and 
Somerset Court House to Morristown, where he established posts 
on the Raritan in Jersey, viz., at Perth Amboy, Bonnontown and 
Brunswick. Gen Washington also established a line of posts oppo- 
site to them with a view of preventing the British garrisons from 
having intercourse with and marauding the country. He, the said 
Massie, was placed on this duty at Middle Post, Matuchen, under 
the command of Col. Hendricks, and served on it near five months. 
This duty was extremely severe by night as well as by day, con- 
stant patrolling, frequent skirmishes, some of them very bloody, 
nocturnal surprises, the cutting off of pickets, etc., always attended 
with loss of men and great fatigue. The British called in their 
posts about the first of June, and the American ports were evacu- 
ated about the middle of June. He, with the other officers, etc., who 
had been in this line of duty, joined the main army at Middlebrook. 
Sometime after, he and five other officers were sent to Virginia \\'ith 
instructions. He, on his return, joined the army under Gen. Wash- 
ington at the White Marsh Hills. Shortly after, Gen Morgan re- 
turned with troops from the capture of Burgone's army. Our army 
then marched into winter quarters by way of the gulf to Valley 
Forge. He was soon detailed on duty under Gen. Morgan, who 
was to take post at Radnor, about half way between Valley Forge 
and the mouth of the Schuylkill River, with a view of cutting off 
the communication of the enemy from that part of the country which 
was effected. About this time (Feb., 1778), he was promoted to 
the rank of Major. In the Spring he commanded a large guard 
low in the lines not far above Philadelphia. Here he received Lord 
Cathcart, aide to Gen. Clinton, with a flag of truce and dispatches 
for Congress. Agreeably to orders, he, Cathcart, was not permitted to 
proceed further. The dispatches were read and delivered to Gen. 
Morgan. Immediately after, Gen. Clinton evacuated Philadelphia. 
He (Massie), marched under Gen. Morgan, through the city, pro- 
ceeded up and crossed the river, and united with the main army. 
He, with Major Gibbs, was detailed to attend Gen. Morgan, who 
was appointed to command the light troops, etc., to interrupt and 
endeavor to retard the march of the British army through Jersey 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

to Sandy Hook. The first attempt to retard their march was made 
at Allentown. This stopped them a day and some prisoners were 
taken. The second attempt was a complete surprise, from thick 
shrubbery in the pines, where 16 to 18 prisoners were brought off 
and a few killed with little loss to the Americans. Several other 
attempts were made to alarm and retard their march which succeeded 
so far as to enable Gen. Washington to march with his main army 
by Englishtown and obtain a position which gave him the power of 
bringing Gen. Clinton to a general engagement, in which it is be- 
lieved he would have been entirely successful except for the flagrant 
disobedience of orders by Gen. Chas. Lee, who commanded the van 
of the American Army. On that, the 28th day of June, 1778 (an 
intense hot day), Gen. Washington ordered Gen. Lee to attack in 
full force. This, the said Massie, knows to be the fact, the orders 
having been communicated verbally by Gen. Washington through 
him (the said Massie), the evening before. On Gen. Lee's approach, 
the British army drew up in order for battle. Gen. Lee ordered a 
retreat which was done under a slow retreating fire for some time. 
Gen. Lee repeatedly sent orders to the officers commanding the 
several flanking corps not to advance and engage. This state of 
things continued until Gen. Washington came into the field himself, 
took the command, arrested Gen. Lee, and renewed the battle by 
bringing the troops into action. The battle at Monmouth Court 
House was a bloody and hard fought action. After the sunset the 
British army gave way, and it being too dark for pursuit, the Ameri- 
can army lay on the field for the night, with a view to renew the 
battle the next day; but the British army in the night made a silent 
and rapid retreat, leaving their dead and wounded. Gen. Morgan, 
under whose command he, the said Massie, still acted was ordered to 
pursue the British early next morning, but they could not be overtaken 
except two or three hundred stragglers that were captured. Pursuit 
was continued to Middleton Heights immediately above Sandy Hook. 
After being there and thereabouts for several days, the troops march- 
ed up by Sposwood to Brunswick bridge on the Raritan River. 
Here we had a feu de joie in honor of the victory of Monmouth. 
From thence he marched to King's Ferry on the Hudson River 
and crossed to the White Plains in New York. Here he remained 
several weeks. From there, he, with several other officers, was order- 
ed to Rhode Island to assist Gen. Sullivan at the siege of Newport, 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

then in the possession of the British. A violent storm, however, 
with rain, etc., for several days having driven Count D'Estrey's 
fleet from the mouth of the harbor out to sea, rendered it impracti- 
cable for Gen. Sullivan to proceed with the siege; he consequently 
retired from the island, and the said Massie with the other officers 
detached as above stated returned and rejoined their respective regi- 
ments then encamped on the Hudson some distance above West 
Point, and on the opposite side. 

Soon after this, the surprise and capture of Baylor's newly raised 
regiment of cavalry near Heroington, happened, when he with his 
regiment marched under the command of Gens. Woodford and 
Morgan with their troops to that neighborhood and took post on 
the strong heights of Paramus. By this time a large British force 
(said to amount to 6,000), under the command of Lord Cornwallis, 
had taken possession of the tow^n of Hackensack, with a view of 
foraging the country, in which they did not succeed to much extent, 
owing to the vigilance of the American troops in attacking and re- 
pulsing their foraging parties. In a few weeks the British army 
returned to New York, and the said Massie with his regiment under 
the command of Col. Febiger was posted at Hackensack. Soon after 
this Col. Febiger was called off, and the said Massie was left in the 
sole command of the regiment. This was the second Virginia regi- 
ment on continental establishment. The ofl!icers were Captains Tay- 
lor, Parker, Calmen, Catlett, Stokes, Kennan, Gill, etc., as well as 
recollected at the distant date. He continued there until after the 
middle of December, when he with his command pursuant to orders 
marched into winter quarters at Boundbrook, on the north side of 
Raritan River (under the command of Gen, Lord Sterling, who 
commanded that division of the army), where he continued quietly 
•for a considerable time. The British were confined to New York 
and its environs and employed in arranging and strengthening their 
posts of defense. Their embarcation of troops to our Southern States 
and other occurrence demonstrated the intention of moving the main 
seat of war there, with a view to attempt the subjugation of those 
states. Time progressing, it was known that Congress had determined 
to defend and save Charleston, if possible, and that the eight old 
Virginia regiments were doomed to that service. Those (8) regi- 
ments were then so much reduced in number that they were con- 
solidated into (?) regiments (March, 1780). The officers whose 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

commissions bore the highest rank, of course, took the command. 
The said Massie was of consequence a supernumerarj' officer, and, 
with Gen. Washington's permission, returned to Virginia, holding 
his commission (which he at this time has), ready and subject to 
duty with other supernumerary officers whenever called on or re- 

He ranked as Major on the 20th of February, 1778, but did 
not take his commission from the war office (not having leisure to 
call for it), until the 20th of March, 1779. His commission as 
captain was literally worn and rubbed out in his pocket while on 
duty from the constant exposure to rain, hail and snow day and night. 
He acted alternately, under the command of Gens. Scott, Weedon, 
Sullivan, Morgan, Woodford, Gen. Lord Sterling, etc. He was 
afterwards under the command of Gen. Nelson as aidecamp in the 
winter of 1780 and 1781, when Arnold invaded Virginia and de- 
stroyed the public stores and houses at Richmond and arsenal and 
foundry, etc., at Westham, and was finally at the siege of Yorktown, 
and the surrender of that post with the British army, in October, 

After the ratification of the treaty of peace, he received five 
thousand, three hundred and thirty-three and a third acres of land 
in the states of Ohio and Kentucky (the patents for which he now 
has), in consideration of his services as Major aforesaid. He like- 
wise received some three per cent and six per cent certificates, not 
worth much at the time, afterwards sold, amount not recollected.

BECK, JESSE.— Amherst, Aug. 21, 1832. Born in Albemarle, 
1758. Prior to March, 1781, performed two terms of three months 
each in the Albemarle militia, guarding British prisoners. Was under 
Captain James Garland, who was killed by a sentinel at Albemarle

Col. Taylor, of Orange, was in charge. About March 1, 1781, under 
a draft of every fourteenth militiaman for 18 months, he became 
sergeant under Capt. Benjamin Harrison. The company made ren- 
dezvous in Hanover, where it was attached to the regiment under 
Col. Paddy and Maj. Finley. At Yorktown he saw the army of

in December, 1782, after nearly 21 months' service instead of eighteen. 
Remembers that when drafted each man was paid a bounty of $4,000, 
which by reason of depreciation was of little value. While in 
Georgia the army under Wayne watched Savannah, where the 
British were waiting transports to carry them home. Wayne's head- 
quarters and his own encampment were at Mulberry Grove, the 
property of a tory, which, after confiscation, was purchased by Gen.

he volunteered for service against the Indians, only two old men 
being left at the station. His Captain was Hugh Megary (?). At 
the falls of the Ohio they joined Col. George Rogers Clark, and 
after a few days marched up the river in advance of him in pursuit 
of Indians. About the eighth day Col. Clark came on in boats, 
passed the company, and landed on the other shore. While in sight 
of Col. Clark the company was attacked by Indians, declarant being 
wounded by a ball which broke both bones in his right arm below 
the elbow. Next day he was sent with the other wounded to the 
falls of the Ohio, where he lay till December under the care of a 
surgeon before he was able to travel. He then returned to Higgins' 
Station. In this tour he was with Col. Clark only one night. During 
the winter he returned to King and Queen and was not fit for any 
more military service, since he could not straighten arm or fingers. 
Until his return he was out on the last tour five or six months. He 
went to see Col. Clarke after the latter returned from his expedition, 
and was told by him that he would have the necessary steps taken 
to have a pension allowed. A pension was granted, but he drew it 
only two or three times beginning with 1784 or 1785. He was some 
distance from Richmond, which fact was troublesome, and he was 
illiterate besides. For one month he was a substitute for William 
Sterling and served at Gloucester Town.

constant duty. The next spring volunteered under Capt. Archibald 
Wood to serve so long as the Indians might be troublesome. In the 
fall the company marched up Bluestone to the settlement near its 
head, to protect the people gathering their fodder. He v^^as in places 
vv^here probably few persons except Indians had ever been. Thus 
served four years (excepting one year that he and two others were 
detailed as spies by Capt, Woods), arduously and almost constantly 
ranging back and forth from Cook's fort to Wood's fort on Rich 
Creek, The country was wild and mountainous. Frequently he car- 
ried orders in the night time, when he could hear not far off the 
yell, the whistle, or the weary tread of the savage. If orders were to 
be sent express he was the man generally selected. Such service, 
however difficult or dangerous, he always performed, and as he be- 
lieves to the full satisfaction of his captain and fellow-soldiers. 
During the year that himself, Philip Cavender, and Nicholas Wood- 
fin were detailed as spies by Capt. Wood, he served at the imminent 
hazard of his life, lying out by night with no covering but his 
blanket and no shelter but the forest, the scream of the panther or 
the yell of the Indian reminded him of his duty to his country. 
After four years Capt, Gray, of Rockbridge took command of the 
company. In the spring of 1782, all signs of the savage disappearing 
from near the settlements, he left the service. When ordered by 
Capt, Gray to the head of Bluestone, after marching twenty miles, 
all but himself refused to go further. An old man named McGuire 
wished to go to the settlement, and one David Clay showing the 
way, we started and soon found we were pursued by some 10 or 12 
Indians. Sometimes we were in mud to our knees, or in water to 
our necks. At dark the pursuers set up a tremendous yell, but we 
heard no more of them, and at length arrived where we were 
ordered, declarant having traveled 40 miles that day after nine in 
the morning.

PRYOR, WILLIAM.— Amherst, Oct. 15, 1832. Born in 
Albemarle (now Amherst), about 1752. Moved to the Great 
Kanawha in fall of 1773, and planted corn next spring, but was 
driven back to Amherst by Indians. Was at Point Pleasant, spring 
of 1775, and there saw Capt. Isaac Shelby, who had been left with 
the wounded after the battle the preceding October. Early in 1776 
the Indians were so troublesome that he, with many others had to 
take shelter in the fort at Point Pleasant, and here substituted for 
James Frazer, in the command of Capt. Matthew Arbuckle, who 
was in charge of the fort. The subalterns were Lieutenants Andrew 
Wallace, James Thompson and Ensigns Samuel Wood and James 
McNutt. After serving out eight months for Frazer in the fall 
he enlisted under Arbuckle for two years. About this time Capt. 
William McKee, Lt. James Gilmer, and many privates came to 
Point Pleasant and were stationed under Arbuckle. Was often 
sent on detail with others up the Kanawha to a plantation to get 
corn, and was often a spy or on guard on the Ohio above the fort. 
In the fall of 1777, Colonels Skillern and Dickinson came on an 
expedition against the Shawnee towns. He met this force at the 
mouth of Elk. Among others of them were James Harrison and 
Micajah Goodwin. When they reached the fort, Lt. Gilmer went 
over the Kanawha to shoot turkeys and was there killed by unknown 
Indians. As soon as Gilmer's body was brought to the fort his men 
murdered Cornstalk, his son Ellinipsico, and another Indian, these 
Indians being held as hostages for the safety of the garrison and 
the settlers. While Skillern and Dickenson were at Point Pleasant, 
Gen. Hand, of the Continental army, came from Pittsburg and 
ordered a return, saying it was too late in the season to attack 
Chillicothe and other Indian towns. Hand ordered Arbuckle and 
IVIcKee to shorten the pay and daily allowance of their men, saying 
they feasted too high. When this order was put into execution 
almost every man in the fort shouldered his gun and put on his 
knapsack, resolving to go home. But Col. McDowell told Hand 
of the impolicy of such measure and obtained permission to address 
the men, who on being promised their former pay and allowance, 
returned to duty. He himself took no part in the mutiny. Because 
of the murder of Cornstalk, the Shawnees, in the spring of 1778, 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

mustered all their strength and besieged Point Pleasant several days. 
They killed Paddy Sherman and wounded Lt, Gilmer. Finding 
they could not take the fort they killed all the stock of the garrison 
and then started for the Greenbrier settlements. We knew of this 
from the Grenadier Squaw, said to be a sister of Cornstalk. She 
had taken shelter in the fort soon after its erection, and continued 
with us. When her own stock was killed she went out with spirits 
and became intoxicated, but overheard the Indians and told the 
officers of their plans. Capt. McKee then proposed that if any 
two -men would go out and warn the Greenbrier people, he would 
so extend their furloughs as to be equivalent to a discharge, which 
itself he could not grant. John Inchminger and John Logan 
accepted and started, but returned the same evening. Philip Ham- 
mond and myself then agreed to go, but I gave way to my older brother, 
John, whom Hammond preferred and who was more experienced 
in Indian warfare. They were dressed in Indian style by the 
Granadier Squaw, and passed the Indians at some meadow about 
12 miles from Donally's fort. They gave information and the set- 
tlers had been in the fort but a little while when the Indians 
attacked and a dreadful conflict ensued. Capt. Arbuckle was then 
in Greenbrier visiting his family. He and Capt. Lewis raised a 
company and forced their way into the fort. The Indians were 
driven off with much loss and Greenbrier was thus saved. During 
this expedition of the Indians, Gen. Clark stopped at Point Pleasant 
on his way to take Vincennes. In the autumn of 1778, there was 
a man in the fort named Morgan who had been a prisoner among 
the Indians many years. A squaw with him was said to be his 
wife. Morgan was in custody and ironed, and was to be taken to 
his father who had offered a large reward for his return. But 
finding himself lightly guarded, he and the squaw ran off and were 
never again heard of. Suspecting he would reach the Indian towns 
and tell that our time was nearly out, and that many of us would 
soon leave, the officers discharged many, including myself. In 1779 
was drafted from Amherst for a three months' tour a little below 
Richmond. He served under Capt. Samuel Higgenbotham, of -Col. 
Christian's regiment, and among his comrades were Zedekiah Shu- 
maker, William Brown, and Samuel Allen. In 1780, he was out 
three months under Capt. Richard Ballinger, serving at Fort Powha- 
tan, below Richmond, now (1832), Fort Jefferson. Among his com-

rades this tour were an elder brother, Nicholas Pryor, and Richard 

Zedekiah Shumaker certified he served with declarant at Point 
Pleasant and below Richmond. 

Note: — In a memorial of James Huston, who moved from the Cow- 
pasture River to Kentucky, in 1783, and died there in 1818, aged 92, it is 
stated that he was out on a scout the day before the attack on Donally's 
Fort, and by means of his dog detected the approach of the Indians, and 
was thus enabled to warn the settlement. Houston's wife was Nancy 
McCreery, and he settled in Fayette County.

1761. Drafted in Rockingham about June 1, 1779, to go to North 
Fork of South Branch of Potomac against the Indians, marching 
under Capt. Robert Craven. While stationed there the Captain 
received a commission to raise a company under a proclamation of 
the governor of South Carolina, offering 1,000 pounds of tobacco 
($33.33) to each volunteer. Applicant accepted the position of cor- 
poral under said offer. With four others he returned with Capt. 
Craven to Rockingham, after being out about two months. The 
company was soon raised and started south about Sept. 1. At 
Hillsboro they lay two weeks waiting for other troops. They 
marched thence under Gen. Stevens to Cheraw Mills where they join- 
ed the army under Gen. Greene. A detachment was sent out to sur- 
prise some tories at the Black Swamp. The tories dispersed, but 
fourteen prisoners were taken. Part of the detachment was sent back 
with the prisoners, the other part marching to Georgetow^n, where 
twenty-eight prisoners and some supplies were taken. Another guard 
was sent off with the new prisoners, the rest of the force joining 
Gen. Morgan about 36 hours before the battle of the Cowpens. 
In the night the army moved about half a mile to the place chosen 
for a fight. Men were left to keep up the fires till daylight. The 
battle began about sunrise. Declarant was in the riflemen, on the 
right of the army, and in the third company from the right. They 
had the pleasure of taking 600 prisoners. Then the army moved 
back before Cornwallis' army to Salisbury, where declarant's com- 
pany was detailed on the guard to convey the prisoners to Virginia. 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

By the time the army was fairly across the Yadkin, the advance of 
the British were on the other bank, but as the river was rising fast, 
they could not cross. The company's baggage wagon was lost, not 
being taken along. At Pittsylvania C. H. they delivered their 
prisoners to the militia of that county and were discharged in Rock- 
ingham in April. Declarant sold his bounty as part pay for a horse. 
In June, 1781, volunteered as sergeant under Capt. Jeremiah Beas- 
ley, and marched to Eastern Virginia, where command was 
attached to the regiment of Col. John Willis and Maj. Rucker, 
Gen. Campbell commanding the brigade. Declarant was in the 
battle of Hot Water, which lasted two hours and ten minutes, the 
Americans falling back to the shelter of Gen. Wayne's army. One 
man of the company was killed and fourteen wounded. In the battle of 
Jamestown, he was on the right, where there was little danger, but 
Gen. Wayne's regular troops suffered very much. Was out this time 
about four months, including a month, consumed in coming and 
going back. Total service, eleven months, in which he carried his 
own rifle, tomahawk, and butcher knife. Affidavit supported by 
John Dunn, a comrade.

The march was then by way of Williamsburg and Yorktown to 
Gwin's Island, where there was fighting several days with the British 
under Lord Dunmore. Several, he thinks seven, ships were de- 
stroyed after Dunmore was driven out. The enemy then went up 
the river, the army watching his movements. News arriving that 
the Indians were troublesome on the frontier, the regiment, which 
was armed with rifles, marched to Holston river. A few days 
before its arrival there had been a battle between the vanguard and 
the Indians. The main body of the army went in pursuit, his regi- 
ment, then commanded by Col. Morgan being stationed at Holston

told they would be mustered for the purpose. Next morning some 
men who wished to show their dislike to the Colonel broke his 
sword near the hilt and shaved the mane and tail of his horse.

In October, joined the regiment at Fredericksburg, remaining there 
five or six weeks, then marching to Reading, Pa., where he was inocu- 
lated for the smallpox. In Februar}^ 1778, the troop marched to 
the Raritan, and next month to Valley Forge. Here the Fourth 
Troop, to which he belonged, commanded by Capt. Cadwallader 
Jones, was employed by Gen. Morgan in preventing the people of the 
county from furnishing supplies to the enemy and in watching the 
movements of the latter. In the action at Monmouth, affiant was 
under the immediate command of Maj. Clough, of Lee's division. 
The regiment then proceeded to Hackensack, remaining there five 
or six weeks, then moving up the river. Sept. 23, it was surprised 
by Gen. Gray while asleep in barns. No quarter was given except 
to the Fourth Troop, all of whom were made prisoners, except 
affiant and John Walker, who escaped by getting in among the 
enemy. Col. Baylor was wounded and Maj. Clough was killed. 
Next day affiant joined the remnant of the regiment and wintered 
at Frederick, Md. In the spring they were joined by the Fourth 
Troop, now exchanged, and by some new recruits. Col. William 
Washington now took command, and they returned to New Jersey, 
again being employed in watching the enemy and preventing trading 
with him. Near the close of 1780, they marched south, arriving 
near Charleston, S. C, in March, 1780. Shortly after, learning 
that Tarleton was on his way from Savannah to Charleston, Wash- 
ington whipped him, taking sixteen prisoners, including a colonel 
and a doctor. But later, Washington was surprised and defeated 
at Alonk's Corner. The attack was so sudden that although the 
horses were saddled and bridled, there was not time to mount. 
Affiant was captured and after being dragged about with the army 
of Cornwallis some ten daj's, was put into a prison ship till after the 
surrender of Charleston. He was then placed in the barracks, there, 
but this being inconvenient to the British, he was again put on 
board a prison ship and confined till about August, when he was 
exchanged at Jamestown, Va. At Malvern Hills he found Capt. 
Cadwallader Jones, and was sent on to Maj. Call of Washington's 
regiment, who was recruiting in Orange, Albemarle, and Goochland. 
After the surrender of Cornwallis he was discharged in South Caro- 
lina, in the fall of 1-782. Bartlett Fitzgerald, a comrade, certifies 
that in Grey's surprise Hight was cut down and left as dead.

HEWITT, JOHN.— Botetourt, Sept. 5, 1833. Born Nov. 14, 
1763, in Botetourt. Volunteered in Continental Line, Sept. 8, 1780, 
for six months, but order to march did not come till Oct. 27. Went 
out under Capt. James Robinson, Nov. 5, were joined by Capt. 
Alexander Handly's company, and marching under Maj. David 
Campbell joined Morgan two days after the battle of the Cowpens. 
There took the place of the Augusta and Rockbridge militia, who 
were about to be discharged. They acted bravely in the battle and 
guarded the prisoners to Virginia. Affiant's command was sent 
down the Catawba to act in concert with Gen. Davidson at Mc- 
Cowan's Ford, and by felling timber along the bank to prevent the 
enemy from crossing. A few hours after this preparation had been 
made a detachment of the enemy appeared on the opposite bank. 
As we were about to fire on them they retired. Before daylight next 
morning the British opened a heavy artillery fire on Gen. Davidson, 
who commanded lower down the river. After daylight they forced 
the passage and Davidson was killed. Meanwhile in a cold dark 
dash with heavy rain, the affiant's command got into the road on which 
Gen. Morgan was retreating and came up with it on the Yadkin, 
which was very much swollen by the rains. It was daybreak before 
the North Carolina militia got over, and took position a half mile up 
the river from the direct road to Salisbury. Next night they were 
attacked by a strong detachment of infantry supported by cavalry, 
and compelled to retreat. The army got over with the exception of 
a small part of the baggage. The last boat had put off when the 
British cavalry reached the river and fired on it with pistols, but 
without effect. In our skirmish, Capt. Hanley and John Allen 
were taken prisoners and a few men killed. The most of those 
who escaped had to cross the river in canoes. When the scattered 
troops assembled they marched to Guilford C. H., where they were 
permitted to rest a while, the enemy being detained by the flood in 
the Yadkin. Then they marched to Bruce's crossroad on the way 

where Col. was cut to pieces by the British cavalry. The 

retreat continued till the Dan was crossed. After the Yadkin was 
crossed the army was commanded by Col. Williams. From the day 
after the battle of Cowpens they were employed night and day in 
throwing every possible difficulty in the enemy's path. The men 

Virginia Militia in the Revolution 

were without tents and often without provisions. The fatigue, pri- 
vation, and loss of sleep brought on sickness and death in that in- 
clement season. When the two rifle companies crossed the Dan the 
111 men were reduced to 17, and there were no officers but the 
major, who gave the remnant a verbal discharge, affiant being one 
of the 17. He volunteered Aug. 6, 1781, and marched to the siege 
of Yorktown under Maj. Patrick Locke, and after the surrender 
guarded prisoners to four miles beyond Winchester, where he was 
discharged the middle of November.

who however, marched at the same hour. The armies met in the 
night, there was a sharp skirmish between the advanced guards, a 
line was formed, and the men stood under arms till- da3break, w^hen 
there was a shameful defeat. No rendezvous had been designated 
and the men lost all their baggage, including all clothing but what 
they had on. Under these circumstances a considerable part of the 
company went home, but a court of inquiry ordered them back to 
serve eight months under regular officers. Under Capt. Paulin we 
marched back to Hillsboro, and there transferred to Capt. Graves,

defeated Tarleton at Cowpens and had to make a rapid retreat

ment, leaving the small eight months company to guard the camp' 
and the mills that were supplying flour and meal. At length Capt. 
Webb received orders to follow with about ten wagons loaded 
with flour and meal and a drove of 400 hogs. We were in the 
rear of both armies, and had to change our course because of 
Cornwallis' march. In Mecklenburg we delivered the supplies to a 
commissary, having safely brought them through a region infested, 
with British and tories. Our time being nearly up, we were per- 
mitted to petition Gen. Greene that he discharge us, we being worn 
out with fatigue and nearly naked. He did so.

KINCAID, JAMES.— Lafayette County, Mo., Nov. 5, 1833. 
Entered service while living at Castlewood on Clinch, 25 miles from 
Abingdon. The settlers in Powell's Valley had been driven out by 
Indians, and manj- of them hid their "plunder," not being able to 
bring it to a place of safety. Capt. John Duncan and company 
were ordered out to guard the people so that they might bring their 
goods into the settlements. Applicant was one year with him. 
Capt. Joseph Martin was at this time stationed at Rye Cave on 
Clinch to guard the frontier. The brothers, John and James, 
Bunnil ( ?) w^ere scouts under him. We met these spies and went 
with them to Martin's Station in said valley, but all had fled. 
One refugee, Capt. (Robert?) Davis met us. He had lived at 
Ovven's Station, ten miles below ALirtin's. Duncan sent five men 
to go with him to Owen's to collect his "plunder." On the way 
back Indians in ambush fired on them, killing Bowman and woun- 

ing James Bunnill and Johnson. Bunnill, Davis, and another 

man got in that night. Next day Duncan went down with all his 
force, including affiant, save a few left- to guard the wounded. 
Davis took us to where an Indian stood that he shot at. We 
found a good deal of blood and followed the trail, but after a 
while it seemed that the party scattered. We buried Bowman and 
returned to Owen's. Bunnill grew very sick and we took him to 
Rye Cave. All were dismissed in about a month. The above took 
place 1776 (?) in summer time. Next went to Kentucky under 
Col. John Bowman, of Bedford, Henry Rolling ( ?) being captain.

he could command it under Rollins. He secured the men, affiant 
and brother Joseph enlisting by consent of father. Overtook Bow- 
man at ford of Cumberland River and joined company of Capt. 
Paulin ( ?). Arrived at Boonesboro about August, 1777. The only 
other stations in Kentucky were Logan's and Harrod's. Staged 
16 to 20 days to let the people get in their corn, which they could 
not do the year before, because of the Indians. Col. Calloway, 
who lived with his family in the fort, expected to return wira 
Bowman, but failed to catch up. When he came back to the fort 
reported a man killed on the trail we had come by, and that the 
Indians had massacred seven or eight families around Castlewood. 
Affiant and brother and several others became uneasy about the home 
folks, and the colonel granted a discharge. On the way back we 
met the Clinch scouts, who confirmed the report and said the 
families not killed had fled. We had been gone about 50 days. 
Next expedition w^as to Illinois under Col. John Montgomery. 
About 130 men and recruits were sent to Clarke and Montgomery, 
and it was understood by us that the army would go to Detroit. 
Affiant and brother, Joseph, enlisted. At Long Island in Holston 
we were met by Col. Evan Shelby and 40 militia, and went by 
canoes to Chicamauga, where in a skirmish we killed a few, took 
some prisoners, stayed two months, and collected a good deal of 
Indian plunder. Shelby returned and Montgomery went to join

Officers of the Virginia Militia 
in the Revolution 


The lists here given for the counties of Albemarle, Amelia, Bed- 
ford, Berkley, Botetourt, Caroline, Chesterfield, Cumberland, Fau- 
quier, Fluvanna, Frederick, Goochland, Greenbrier, Henrico, 
Loudoun, Louisa, Orange, Powhatan, Rockbridge, and Spottsyl- 
vania, were compiled directly from the County Order Book, ex- 
cepting Albemarle (in part), and Spottsylvania. The records of 
Fluvanna and Greenbrier were found somewhat deficient, and those 
of Henrico were very much wanting. Nothing was found in Buck- 
ingham, Culpeper, Dinwiddie, Fairfax, Hampshire, Nottoway, Prince 
George, Prince William, or Stafford. 

These lists give the date of nomination or commission, and 
wherever possible, the captains under whom the lieutenants and en- 
signs served. It is evident that the record was not always complete. 
In some instances an officer was undoubtedly sworn in, although only 
the date of recommendation can be found on the Order Book. 

Where a name, as of "John Smith," appears tw^fce, it is because 
it is not clear that in each instance the same person is designated. 
And as a higher rank usually means that the officer has previously 
served in one or more lower grades, only the highest rank found is 
given in the lists. 

Where a date is given without any explanatory mark, it means 
that the person is known to have held the indicated rank in the year 

The special abbreviations used are the following: 
Co. Lt. — County Lieutenant. 
Cp. — Captain. 

Lt. — Lieutenant (when there is nothing to show whether 
first or second.)

F. L. — First Lieutenant. 

S. L. — Second Lieutenant. 

En. — Ensign. 

S. — Sworn into office. 

A. — Appointed by county court. 

R. — Recommended by county court. 

N. — Nominated by county court. 

The three last expressions were all in use, but seem as a 
rule, to have the same force. 
Com'd — Date of Commission by governor; bearer subse- 
quently sworn in. 
P'ner — Prisoner of war in hands of the enemy. 
Res. — Resigned.
